Natsu no Kaiseki - Special Dining Event

Natsu no Kaiseki

We invite you to "Natsu No Kaiseki", a taste of summer. On July 28, Chef Koji Kobayashi will prepare a traditional Japanese fine-dining experience by utilizing the seasonality of Japanese ingredients and techniques. This event will feature a Chef's tasting menu paired alongside Japanese sake, wine, and tea, prepared by sake sommelier Yasuhiro Washiyama from Sake Gami. 

Hailing from Osaka, Japan, Chef Koji Kobayashi is professionally trained in 'kaiseki', the highest form of Japanese dining. After working at some of Osaka's most illustrious restaurants including Kagairou, he became sous chef at Nagomi An Kitahama, a fine-dining restaurant known for its seasonally influenced 10-course tasting menus. Now residing in Calgary, Chef Kobayashi brings his finely honed skills and passion for seasonality to Calgary's own Sukiyaki House.
